Southern Sudan will be a fragile state and the North will probably become more autocratic. Meanwhile, the war in Darfur may even reignite.

On June 14, the prosecutor of the International Criminal Court (ICC), Luis Moreno Ocampo, presented his third mid-term report on the crimes committed in Darfur (western Sudan) to the UN Security Council. Since the beginning of 2003, the Sudanese army and "Janjawid" militias from Arab tribes in the region have been waging an extremely bloody battle against two rebel movements - the Sudan People's Liberation Army (SPLA) and the Justice and Equity Movement (JEM). Moreno Ocampo told the Security Council, which referred the case to the ICC on March 31, 2005 that he is making "progress" in his investigations, even though "insecurity in Darfur is prohibitive of effective investigations inside Darfur."
